During their home game on March 21, 2017, the Patterson Chess team tied with Mervo.

Coaches Mr. Tola and Mr. Baron had trained the chess players and prepared them for what was coming.  All of their practices made the Patterson chess players look forward to this competition. Even though some chess players lost, they were still happy that they had the chance to participate in this competition.

Mr. Baron said, “I’m proud of how the team played. It’s a good reminder that every move in chess, just like in life, counts.”
